3 things that will help you keep your peace: Detachment, surrender and gratitude!
A few weeks ago, I mentioned that so many things started going wrong (not the way I wanted them to). This was just before I went on holiday. You can read what they were in my earlier newsletter from July 21st here.
Oh, but they didn’t end there…
We had a lovely holiday and practice manifesting exactly what we wanted as a family, mostly led by my children, as you will have also read in my Newsletter from last week.
On our return, I had a few things going wrong, to say the least, specifically related to my recently bought iPhone!
One morning, after charging it to 100% overnight, I took it off the plug and started listening to my morning meditation. Within a few minutes, my phone stopped. Upon turning it back on I noticed the battery level was at 1%. When I put it back on charge there was no sign of it starting to charge…
Believe it or not, this is exactly what had happened to my other iPhone just 6 weeks prior (hence the new phone).
It is too much of a coincidence for my liking, and I don’t even believe in coincidence!
As it was passed the return date for my new (ex-display) phone I was only able to send it back to the seller for repairs free of charge.
In the meantime, I got my old iPhone (which I never really wanted to let go of in the first place) battery replaced to have a backup phone!
Tuesday last week I received my repaired phone and started using it again, but something wasn’t right, with the way I was feeling about the phone. Can’t quite explain it but I sure felt it.
On Wednesday, I took my kids out for lunch with my phone in my bag, where I always carry it. In the café, I momentarily opened my bag and picked up my phone (as you do, such a bad habit). To my shock and horror, the screen looked as if a whole cup of blue ink spilt all over it.
At that moment, I chose to surrender! I felt annoyed, angry, frustrated, and helpless, yet I KNEW it was time to surrender to the moment and know that everything will be sorted, in the end!
Having sorted out a way to send it back to the seller, I have consciously chosen to BE in gratitude for what I have in my life right now! I have sat in silence and listed all the good things I already have in my life and stayed in gratitude.
It is a phone at the end of the day. Despite the addiction I (we all) seem to have developed to this smart device, I realised it takes our own smartness away because we are so attached to it ALL THE TIME.
And it is not as important as other things we take for granted in our life (like your health, the well-being of your family, the food you have access to etc.)
I don’t believe in coincidence, but I do believe we create our own reality with our thoughts and the feelings those thoughts create.
Just the night before my new phone had gone wrong for the first time, I was sitting in my garden and thinking: ’I should really put it down and stop scrolling so much and allow more space for silence’.
Well, there you go, the universe gives you exactly what you want when you clearly articulate it and detach from HOW it will happen.
You see, I didn’t like to phone, I wished I wasn’t using it so much and in the end, the Universe found a way for me to get rid of it!
You might be wondering what happened to it. I got a full refund!
So, if you want to stay in your peace no matter what the circumstances are:
1. Detach form how the outcome you want is going to manifest itself
2. Surrender (to God, the Universe, whatever higher force you believe in) that it will get sorted in the best way possible.
3. BE in gratitude for what is right in front of you at this moment (instead of focusing on the event that is taking your power away)
And remember, things are always working out, even when they are not working!
